In traditionally red states, US President Donald Trump has made a strong showing, scoring wins across the deep South and parts of Middle America, although large electoral prizes in Texas and Florida have yet to be named.
According to projections from the Associated Press and other outlets, Trump was announced the winner in southern states such as Alabama, Mississippi, Louisiana, Arkansas, South Carolina, Missouri, and Tennessee. In states such as North and South Dakota, Nebraska, Wyoming, Kansas, and Oklahoma, the forecasts also listed wins for the president throughout the US hinterland.
In some Midwest states, Trump is also making a strong showing, with Indiana calling in his favor at over 20 points ahead of Democratic challenger Joe Biden. West Virginia was also called for Trump at 90 percent reporting, who won with more than 68 percent of the vote to Biden's 30 percent.
Projections for races in Florida and Texas, worth a hefty 29 and 38 votes from the Electoral College respectively, put Trump in the lead, but no outlet has called him. Although Biden currently accounts for 131 of Trump's 108 potential electoral votes, the two states could close the gap in what is still a narrow race for the incumbent.
